Here is the deal, if you are looking for a get-rich-quick-while-transforming-the-world book, this ain't it.

(and, for openness, I was part of the people interviewed for this book, and I know Chris).

This is a great book for those people that are looking to understand why Digital Transformation is happening, why now, and what businesses need to do. Chris has taken the experience accumulated through the many years and figured out a way to explain it to those who are interested. Truthfully, not a beginner's book, you need to understand business well enough to get started, and understand what you are trying to before you get to the back of the book. There are plenty of examples, good frameworks and exercises (disguised as detailed explanations and discussions and sidebars), and lots and lots of carefully curated information on how to make a good business better.

If you are looking for a book that will not only explain to you how we got here, but where we are going and how you can (in the words of plenty of people who have done it before) transform your business to take advantage of the amazing times we are living in - this is the book you need to read.

As the Chinese saying goes, may you live in interesting times (and may you find a good book to guide you through them).

This is a great read if you need to convince your IT organization or corporate comms team that you need a new intranet and/or collaboration platform. It includes plenty of examples of real companies and how they have use social technologies to drive their transformation initiatives.

"A firms ability to harness new technology is the key to its longevity". Enough said right there. Cloud, mobile, social, and big data are hitting enterprises like a tidal wave. This book is a great read and lays out past, present and future of knowledge work with real stories from a number of real companies and how they benefitted from social technology. Co-invention to crowd sourcing, sales, corp comm, HR, etc...this books hits 'em all. There's a number of great case studies outlined in the book. And I also like how this book talked about implementations..."the how" and directly relates everything to driving business value. What's also interesting is how he talked about using a "freemium" technology and the downside of falling into this trap. And like many organizations we have SharePoint and he explores how social solutions can "make old new again". There's a lot of great information in the book where I now can begin to build my business case, plan the from/to, focus on changing behaviors, and set my organization up for success. I am ready to replatform my company after reading this book!

Chris has wrote a 'Tour de Force' on how Disruptive Technologies has shaped the World,
from Sony's Walkman to Apple's iPod.

He has also discussed current Business Drivers and Social Technologies,
which are at the Center of the current Web. 2.0 Developments.

Great Reading, especially if you are interested in Technologies
and the Internet.
